Hammocks have been around for a long time. You’ve probably seen the rope and brace hammocks hanging in back yards for years. Recently, however, they’ve taken on a more popular position in camping, hiking, and other outdoor activities. After all, they are light, comfortable, and easy to set up almost anywhere! You just need a couple of trees and you’re good to go.

Modern hammocks share very little with the heavy and awkward rope hammocks from years past. They are now made with ultra-strong nylon materials that are lightweight and breathable, making them perfect for a comfortable resting spot that doesn’t require a lot of special equipment. Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO) is one of the companies that has helped make the outdoor hammock revolution so popular.

Relatively inexpensive and with a lot of great options for anyone, ENO hammocks are bringing the incredible experience of hammock hanging to the masses. Their hammocks are built to last and are light and compact enough for day hikes or extended backpacking trips. The most popular ENO hammock, the Doublenest, is about the size of a water bottle when packed and weighs just over a pound. The Doublenest can also support up to 400 lbs., ensuring you are safe and comfortable in your hammock.

ENO also has a host of accessories for whatever kind of use you plan for your new hammock, from bug nets, tarps, and lights, to insulation and much more. You will be ready to really enjoy the best rest you’ve ever had on the trail.

Unlike a tent, you don’t have to find a flat and clear place to set up your hammock—just a couple of trees! This opens up a world of new possibilities to camp. Being up off the ground also means you don’t have to worry about creepy crawlies and unwanted critters ending up in your bed—always a bonus!

So, pick up a hammock and learn what everyone has been raving about. You can find a wide variety of ENO equipment at Bass Pro Shops and Dick’s Sporting Goods at The Pinnacle. One of their professional staff members will be able to help you understand the difference a hammock can make, and help you get all the materials you need to fully enjoy your new pastime.

Don’t forget to also pick up the right boots, shoes, and outdoor clothing you need to make the most out of your adventures in your hammock by visiting Eddie Bauer, Surf and Dirt, Boot Barn, Bass Pro Shops, and Dick’s Sporting Goods. Once you get into your new hammock, you’re going to start finding reasons to get outdoors more often, and that’s always a good thing!
